I first became interested in Ragdolls in the mid-1980s, when I saw a picture and an article in a German pet magazine. I was fascinated! Two years later, I came to live in the United States.
I have loved cats all my life and have cared for them in all shapes and sizes for over 40 years, some pedigree, a Persian, a Chinchilla, a few from rescue centres…however, Ragdolls are pretty special .
Our beloved domestic short haired calico kitty had just passed away after 19 years and we were not sure if we wanted to look for another cat right away.
I was introduced to Ragdolls by my mom when she got her Ragdoll, Sonny. She had spent months watching videos of Ragdolls on YouTube.
We found a kitten in the middle of the road, in mid September of 2015. Poor little girl was thrown out, crawling across a fairly busy rural road.
This is Clawdio. Aptly named after another furry monster with a great vocal range, Claudio Sanchez, from the band Coheed and Cambria. He loves to sing to us whenever we come home.
I have always loved cats! Grew up with a Siamese and then adopted an orange tabby after college who was with me for over 10 years and several moves.
My boyfriend and I moved to the Czech Republic and he felt that I needed an extra special companion for when I was missing my family. This is how we came to find our fantastic kitten Tallulah.
I’ve always loved cats, especially long haired ones, but I’ve only ever had Persian cats… until the day when I was buying some stuff online for my Persian cat and saw a product with a Ragdoll picture on it.
I have been a cat lover for most of my life really, it all started as cats just being cute, to being fascinated with their behaviour, and eventually deciding I wanted one for myself.
